The bad news for the Dallas Cowboys was delivered earlier today by coach Mike McCarthy. As the team heads over to play the Washington Football Team, they will do so without right guard Zack Martin. He has been in concussion protocol since the Cardinals game and will not play this weekend. Presumably Connor McGovern will fill in for him.
The Cowboys designated both Chidobe Awuzie and Sean Lee for return from injured reserve, but neither will play this weekend and there isn’t a specific timetable for their return to action. Randy Gregory is coming off his suspension and should be ready to play on Sunday.
Brandon Knight is out, and Aldon Smith is listed as limited. Cam Erving has been practicing this week and will likely come off the injured reserve list this weekend and be added to the game day roster, presumably taking over for Knight. As for Aldon Smith, earlier this week coach McCarthy said he thought he would be able to play.
